Dubai launches metro, marine station upgrade programme

Roads and Transport Authority says 40 metro and marine transport stations will be upgraded by 2025

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Saturday said it has awarded a contract to upgrade three Dubai Metro red line stations.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Saturday said it has awarded a contract to upgrade three Dubai Metro red line stations.

Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the RTA said the step is part of a five-year plan for the improvement of metro and marine transport stations.

In total, 40 metro and marine transport stations will be upgraded by 2025 to improve connectivity between stations and urban and tourist attractions up to 500 metres in the surrounding area.

“The plan will kick off by improving Dubai Internet City, Damac Properties and UAE Exchange. It also encompasses improving the infrastructure around five other stations – Al Rashidiya, GGICO, Al Qiyada, Noor Bank and Financial Centre Station – and two marine transport stations – Dubai Water Canal, Sheikh Zayed Road,” said Al Tayer.

He added that the selection of these stations was based on several parameters such as the number of riders, population density and transfers to other transit means.

Improvements to the first three stations include adding a new western entry to Dubai Internet City station and improving the link between Damac Metro Station and Dubai Marina Tram Station to handle the rising number of riders during morning and evening peak times.

An additional eastern entry will also be added to the UAE Exchange station to enhance the accessibility to the station.

The upgrades come 10 years after Dubai Metro was launched by ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
